Help Support Local Businesses by Shopping on Small Business Saturday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.- Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of year, but for smaller businesses it's not ideal. However, thanks to American Express our local shop owners have their own "mini Black Friday".

    

American Express started Small Business Saturday nationwide back in 2010. Businesses here in Yakima have hopped on board with the project in the last few years.

We spoke with Inkling's Bookstore owner, Susan Richmond, who tells us Small Business Saturday does wonders for the little guys, "We are open on Black Friday, but we don't have a lot of business that day, we like to put most of our emphasis on Small Business Saturday which seems to bring the local people together and show what the local people have to offer."

    

Yakima will hold Small Business Saturday tomorrow, if you'd like a list of the businesses participating this year just click on this link, http://bit.ly/1YyMXCT.
